After achieving an all-kill in the Hong Kong music charts with her first 2013 single, “Cold Joke” <冷笑話>, Fiona Sit (薛凱琪) continues her reign as the best-selling queen of singles with the release of her next promotional plug, “Leaving Me” <告別我>, which was released online on February 26. The music video, directed by Taiwanese art director Jude Chen (陳映之), premiered on YouTube a few hours after the single’s online launch.
Composed by Khalil Fong (方大同) and with lyrics penned by Jackson Lam (林寶), “Leaving Me” is Fiona’s second musical release after signing with her new label and management, Sun Entertainment, in late 2012. The lyrics tell of a girl’s fear of confessing to her love interest. The lyrics then describe about a fear in accepting a “goodbye flower,” a representation of a relationship that never began. Fiona expressed that the lyrics are a reflection of herself.
Fiona, known for her colorful and artistic music videos, also incorporated some technical innovations in the music video of “Leaving Me.” The entire music video was filmed with purple and pink gradients, and many scenes were shot with a slow motion camera. Fiona humorously exclaimed that the slow motion capture was hard to film, as she struggled to maintain an attractive face throughout the prolonged shoot, “There was one scene in which I opened a champagne bottle, and I didn’t have enough strength to pop it. The camera caught a very unattractive face of me trying to pry it open, so that simple scene took many champagne bottles to do right!”
